    New build in Cucamonga, CA

    17 x 36 with baja step (approx. 7' x 12'). 3 1/2' to 7' deep. 8' spa...We have had several pool contractors come out and give us prices. All of them have changed the design a bit but the size of pool has stayed the same. From top of pool area to back of house there is a 6' slope. The drawing I posted has 18" pony wall around back and sides of pool and 36" pony wall with steps at front of pool. Also have 6 pillars with lights around pool. I have a big family so want lots of room around pool for lounge chairs and table. After getting a few prices, we are thinking of a DIY pool/spa. Not sure yet. Any advice is appreciated.

    That looks like a beautiful plan and a nice, spacious back yard. I'm wondering if the drawing is deceptive, but the deck space doesn't look overly large after putting several chaise and a table/chairs. The area in front of the steps will likely stay open as a foyer to the pool. And the chaise take up a lot of room. With the angles and planting areas, you do lose a lot of space to spread out...though they are fantastic looking. Have you laid this out with garden hoses or spray paint and chairs to test out the deck size? We also have walls surrounding our pool and did go big on the deck. My goal was to have plenty of area for the kids to "be kids" while still having room for those relaxing to be unaffected. So walkways needed to remain open with all lounge chairs in place. Just a few thoughts.

    I'd suggest listing out your equipment and any other details you have to get the most bang for your TFP buck regarding comments/advice. And welcome!!

    I can't wait to see this one happen! Love the design. I do have to say go bigger/more on the patio around the pool.

    I would also center your spa on the back of the pool. But that might just be the drawing...

    Re: New build in Cucamonga, CA

    Pool in progress. Rebar and rough plumbing is done and gunite is being done on Wednesday. We are going to have brushed concrete for deck (thinking to add more to back and front areas) but not sure about coping. Either cantilever or Travertine 24" pavers. I want to have a light color tile, white/ivory (to match what I have inside house) with glass tile accents. Any advice would be appreciated. Having trouble uploading photos...working on it

    This is my whole property...plus a few pictures from house. My property slopes from up from south to north... so we may have to have a small retaining wall to the south of pool. The raised bond/spa is going to be 12", so two steps on right and left side of pool.

    Beautiful design! I had that as my original design (double roman), but my yard is too constrained to fit it with the features I wanted, so we went with a more L design. Looking forward to watching your build, grats!!

    Awesome design and best of all area. I attend the pro mx races at Glen Helen yearly and just love the Inland Empire. Just perfect from my point of view. Enjoy and keep us updated.
